  • Fifty Grand: A Novel of Suspense

    • UNABRIDGED (13 hrs and 59 mins)
    • By Adrian McKinty
    • Narrated By Paula Christensen

    An illegal immigrant is killed in a hit-and-run on a frozen mountain road in the town of Fairview, Colorado. No one is prosecuted for his death and his case is quietly forgotten. Six months later another illegal makes a treacherous run across the border, barely escaping with her life. She finds work as a maid and, secretly, begins to investigate the death of her father. But she isn't a maid, and she's not Mexican.

    David says: "Anxiously Awaited"
    "Pleasant Surprise"

    I was surprised to find this book on my iPod. I don't remember downloading it. I have never heard of the author or of the book by its title. So naturally I listened to it. I thought it was an excellent 'read' and thought the narrator did a good job. It is hard to imagine this book read by a male narrator, or any female reader doing a better job. The book has a sort of 'rapid fire' style which might put some people off. Also it might be offensive to Scientologists.

  • The Ghost in Love

    • UNABRIDGED (9 hrs and 11 mins)
    • By Jonathan Carroll
    • Narrated By Ray Porter
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Just after a man falls in the snow and hits his head on a stone curb, a ghost arrives to take his soul to the afterlife. But something strange occurs: the man doesn't die. Flabbergasted, the ghost appeals to his boss for further direction and is instructed to stay with the man until the strange "problem" is worked out.

    Brien says: "Interesting writing style, complex story"
    "Very Good read well woth the time."

    I thought the book was well presented and well read. As a physicist I like the authors treatment of time.Interesting story, but one that I can well imagine that many would not like. I think you need to suspend judgment to enjoy the book.It is nothing like a Monty Python movie but I suspect if you don't like those movies you will not like this book.

  • The Visitor

    • UNABRIDGED (14 hrs and 1 min)
    • By Lee Child
    • Narrated By Hayward Morse

    Highflying army career women Sergeant Amy Callan and Lieutenant Caroline Cook are both victims of sexual harassment by their superiors. And now they're both dead. FBI psychological profilers start the hunt for a serial murderer; a smart guy with a score to settle, a loner, an army man, a ruthless vigilante known to them both.

    Tim says: "Reacher is great. The Reader is not."
    "Painful to listen to but a great story."

    I liked this book a lot. It is the best book by Lee Child I have read or listened to. I am buying a copy for my wife who is also a Lee Child fan so that she can appreciate the book without listening to this narrator. The narration is the only reason I would not give this five stars. In many ways this is a locked room murder mystery in the manner of those written so cleverly by John Dickinson Carr. I did figure out who the villain was but not how it was done. All the clues were there.

  • The Fourth Hand

    • UNABRIDGED (11 hrs and 15 mins)
    • By John Irving
    • Narrated By Jason Culp

    Millions of television viewers witness a journalist lose his left-hand to a lion, triggering a nationwide race to find and deliver a hand transplant. John Irving's tenth novel promises more seamless storytelling and a penetrating look at the power of second chances.

    Suzn F says: "WELL..... I LOVED IT"

    I would guess that this could best be described as a love story. I did not find it particularly funney. There is not much of a plot. On the positive side it has lots of very interesting characters. I am not sorry I listened to it but would not recommend it to anyone who is not a fan of the author.
